The area around the lock/Slussen in Stockholm has an ancient history as a major hub for transportation and travel both on land and at sea. The exhibition Slussen tells the stories of the different locks throughout the ages, as well as the City of Stockholm's plans for a new traffic solution and the alternative plan that many opponents have gathered around. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a wooden model of Christopher Polhem's lock from 1766. History and future meet at Slussen - today's debated construction rests on the foundations of Polhem's lock from the 1750's. The exhibition runs from October 5th and until further notice.

Sara Szyber starts at new collaboration with the company Kateha, for which she has designed a new carpet in handtufted wool.

Distinct figure, immediate materiality, focused presence. Bright and playful with ergonomics that are precise to the millimeter, and with the same characteristic U-shaped cutout as in the table drawers, now offering a convenient slit for securing a handbag. And it's a chair that's on the move. The back slightly inclined. The back legs flexed. It's just what's required, to raise the chair above the ordinary.
The list is long: Anna Holmquist, Ann Wåhlström, Carina Seth Andersson, Cecilia Hertz, Chandra Ahlsell, Monica Förster, Nina Jobs, Pia Wallén, Sara Szyber and Ulrika Mårtensson. They've created everything from blankets and bottles to space shuttles and sex toys, but what these ten women have in common is that they number among Sweden's top female designers.

De sjutton formgivare som här presenteras fullföljer och fullkomnar en tradition av driftiga och begåvade kvinnor. Numera arbetar de självklart inom alla tänkbara designområden, ofta gränsöverskridande, med olika metoder och material, textil förstås, liksom glas, keramik, trä och metall; som inredningsarkitekter, med möbel- och industridesign samt grafisk form.
Bakom dessa inspirerande formgivarporträtt står några av våra mest välrenommerade designskribenter: Ulf Beckman, Dan Gordan, Hedvig Hedqvist, Lotta Lewenhaupt och Rebecka Tarschys. Susanne Helgeson har gjort ett personligt porträtt av Pascale Cottard-Olsson själv, kvinnan bakom det designgalleri där alla sjutton någon gång ställt ut. Kerstin Wickman har tecknat den designhistoriska bakgrunden. Carl Hjelte har fotograferat och Patric Leo ansvarat för formgivningen av boken.
Boken släpptes 8 mars i Sverige, utkommer 23 mars i USA.
Tillvaron som frilansande formgivare är stundtals tuff men Sara Szyber väljer frihet framför trygghet och efter tolv år som inredningsarkitekt och formgivare är hon i dag etablerad. Sandra Nolgren träffade henne i lokalen på Nytorgsgatan.
Utställningen ”Allrum H55/H05” ägde ursprungligen rum i Helsingborg sommaren 2005, och visar vardagsföremål som introducerades på H55 (1955) blandat med dagens svenska formgivare och producenter. I Paris på Hotel de Ville visas en omarbetad version i den vackra entréhallen. Sara medverkar med slagbord Wing, sidobord Slide (producent Design House Stockholm) samt vasen Metal Queen (producent Formtanke). Utställningen pågår 4.3 - 15.4
